“A desperate shortage of female staff is threatening to undermine the legitimacy of the elections, which are the pinnacle of western-led efforts to build a peaceful democracy. Strict cultural norms mean women can’t vote in male-run stations.”
Well, what do you expect? Belief in a vicious, misogynistic sky fairy comes before the democratic rights of real people here on Earth. It is an Islamic country, after all. What do you want: a modern attitude to things? Don’t be silly!
